VP of Shorpy Inc.

I love your clever insertion of the name on the sign base!

But hey, the ashtray in't completely full yet, so he cannot get his promotion until it is overflowing and the pill bottles are empty! Gotta squeeze the most out of our loyal staff...

Cause and effect?

Welllllll - is it actually the promotion, or is it rather the pills, the cigarettes and maybe the three bourbons after hours (and maybe before driving home for the night) which are going to get Mr. Vice President?

Stress beater

Of course the harried V.P. could relieve a bit of the stress at his daily three-martini lunches.
